  • A beautiful course with great passion built and put together. The owner welcomed us very warmly, and you felt immediately welcome. There is much to see and discover. Zaid speaks perfect german, and his enthusiasm for the Berber culture is contagious! We spent a beautiful morning, and the whole thing without pushy sales show. JUST A TIP!

  • This is place inspires an exceptional wisdom and peace. Thanks to Zaid to have created this beautiful place and thanks for sharing with us all his knowledge, his philosophy and his passion. The Museum is so beautiful, rich in objects, large and small, beautifully assembled by Zaid himself during a lifetime, and who, accompanied by his explanations, we learn things about the life of the Berbers, and make us open big eyes . A grand place. Once the museum tour, don't miss a visit to the art gallery of Zaid at the entrance of Tineghrir. It is a true oasis of bougainvillea and songbirds. And you may be lucky like us to knowledge of the wife of Zaid.

  • This museum is the life's work of Zaid Abbou. Sources in the desert! A museum that shows the history and traditions of Morocco. A wonderful person who invested the small entrance fee in his ideas and does good to the Museum and the environment and thus the people. A pity that the big travel agencies don't have this Museum in their program because Zaid can't blackmail with commissions for the agencies. Love Morocco tourists: supports please this great project! Zaid is also a master of calligraphy and exhibiting his art and that of his colleagues in the Museum.

  • The visit took us 1 hour but it was worth 3 centuries of time travelling while seeing all the collected materials Mr Zaid exposed and gave back somehow to life. Located in the middle of a rocky island, the view of bubbling water is just awesome 😊
  • superb. Stop there, Zaid is a fantastic host
  • Very nice, very rewarding visit. I recommend it to you, we are left with a dessert rose offered by the owner of the premises. Nice touch.

  • Perhaps the most magical place, what I saw in Morocco. Art Gallery in the middle of anything, and in the middle of Zaid Abbou, madman, with these fools, which most need to appreciate who have vision and devote their lives to this vision a reality. Dreaming of a clean Morocco, cleared retrieved from the desert and built around it-an art gallery? The Museum? Unexpected meeting with Antoine'm de Saint-Exupery'm and Khalil Gibranem.

  • Zaid makes US discover his Morocco through an impressive collection of antique objects with passion. His approach to save the source of pollution is to be encouraged.
